KOM Networks CTO to Deliver Presentation on Storage Virtualization at Network Storage 2001, June 14th, Monterey, California
Ottawa, ON Canada – May 21, 2001
KOM Networks announced today that Kamel Shaath, Chief Technology Officer, will be delivering a presentation on Storage Virtualization at Network Storage 2001, June 11th to 14th in Monterey, California.
Created by Peripheral Concepts in 1994 when storage networking was just a concept in the open Environment, the annual Network Storage conference has established itself as a premier forum in delivering valuable content on storage and storage networking. Over 300 leading industry experts, IT professionals, and vendors will attend and discuss the issues pertaining to storage system products, applications and solutions.
A leading proponent of storage virtualization, Mr. Shaath's concept of storage virtualization pivots on the principal of building policy-driven virtual storage repositories that are vendor, technology and device neutral. He will be speaking on the myths vs. the realities of storage virtualization at Network Storage 2001.
"Storage Virtualization is both a red hot technology area and a very confusing one! Forums like this are great ways for users to get perspective on what's available and what's a pipe dream," said Mr. Steve Duplessie, Founder of the Enterprise Storage Group.
Two years ago, Mr. Shaath led the development of the StealthWorx™ software at KOM Networks to extend the virtualization across different technologies, namely hard disks and RAID.
The recent trend of converting paper to electronic forms of communication and data collection has accelerated the need for storage and made data management systems one of the fastest growing high-tech areas. According to a recent New York Times article, analysts project that spending on data storage products will account for 70 per cent of information technology budgets by 2005.
